:-) Nothing stupid said by you at all. As I mentioned, I have just
started looking at the Sutherlin name because I had never seen any
connection with my family until I found a connection in Halifax Co. VA
and the use of the Sutherlin spelling by someone I believe to be my
GGGGrandfather. That caused me to subscribe to the Sutherlin list in
hopes that I could connect him (Peyton) with the rest of his family.
Having grown up in Stoddard Co., Mo, I was surprised to find other
families with the name of Sutherland as well as the Sutherlins. (We
used the Southerland spelling.) So no, I did not know who John P.
Sutherlin belonged to. I was just passing on the information for others
realizing that everyone may already know. I am curious to know if that
generation of Sutherlins moved on or if they stayed in Stoddard Co. The
reason I ask is because I did not see their names in the Stoddard Co.
You are dealing with someone who is rather new to this direction of the
Am I thinking correctly in that Philip is one of the sons of Alexander,
My GGGrandfather, Green Berry Sutherland, was born in VA, and went into
Person Co., NC and to KY and then to Southeast MO into Stoddard Co.
That is why I question if I have a conection with the Sutherlins in
Stoddard Co. I assume that John P. came to MO from Indiana. Is that a
Thanks for you patience and help.
Yes, John P. Sutherlin may have come from Indiana, I'll have to check to see
if I can figure that out, based upon his birth date. I am at work now, so I
don't have access to this info. But, his father, Samuel, did come to MO from
IN and, he may have been born in NC, if my memory serves me. Your Samuel was
the brother to my g-g-grandfather Isham, both sons of Philip, who's father
was also Philip. Philip Jr. came from NC prior to moving to IN, but we
think that he was raised in SC. We don't know who Philip Sr.'s father was,
but there are many guesses floating around. About the time we feel strongly
about one of them, we come up with some conflict. Genealogy is an exact
science and there is no room for error. So, until we know for sure, which
may be never, we'll have to leave that one alone.
I'll see if I can find other descendents of John P. Sutherlin, or, because
I'll copy the group here, maybe someone in the list knows whether or not his
descendents stayed in MO.
